Delta at Los Angeles

With the new JFK Terminal 4 now due to open on 24 May, and Terminal 5 at Atlanta ready to celebrate its first 12 months, Delta Air Lines has confirmed plans to significantly overhaul Terminal 5 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

The US$229m construction has already begun and is scheduled to take place in several phases with full completion in 2015.

Highlights of the project include doubling the size of the ticketing lobby and federal security screening checkpoints; an exclusive Sky Priority experience with a separate lobby and checkpoint; a private VIP check-in lobby that will provide the most elite experience available at LAX; a renovation of the Delta Sky Club to include full-service bar, new carpet, tile, and additional recharge stations for personal electronic devices; new baggage carousels; upgraded facilities to improve international baggage recheck. 

This year there is the planned opening of 15 new restaurants and shops featuring celebrity chefs and retail brand names that reflect the cuisine, culture and lifestyle of Los Angeles.

For summer 2013 Delta will operate 118 departures on peak days to 40 non-stop destinations, including Sydney and Tokyo, from Los Angeles.  Delta offers transcontinental flights between Los Angeles and New York-JFK seven times daily.
